    Staff Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Bangalore (India)
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Bangalore (India)
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Informatica in April 2014.

    Interview Details

    Recruiter approached me via social media connection. Very proactive and great in communication (makes you feel comfortable). Total 9-10 rounds of interview cycles varying from technical to the leadership level questions. Also made a presentation to the Senior leadership team of technical architects and managements. Each interview lasted for about an hour.

    Started with telephonic interview with questions around connection pooling, sorting for unknown size of a streaming data, etc.

    Later onsite full day interviews most of them being technical and few with the senior management and one with HR Business partner.

    Technical questions are mostly in the area Informatica is working on like data cleansing, optimization for data staging, metadata management, handling hierarchical structure data, etc. In one of the interview, they made me write the code (of my preferred language) on alteration of binary tree management.

    Leadership orientated questions includes how to deal with the situation where you don't know much technical insights but critical for the business; will you accept the challenge or will reject due to lack of confidence behind the technicality of the subject, etc.

    Overall great experience with the interview process; however, request to HR to be punctual on the schedules. I had to wait for one hour for one of the interview :(
